I chose Lonza because…
Oddly enough because it was a small company when I joined here in Walkersville 31 years ago. I’ve enjoyed watching the company grow and I am proud to have been part of that.

Since I started at Lonza, my career has progressed…
...in a variety of ways. Over the years, I’ve worked in Administration in Quality Assurance and Regulatory Affairs, as well as supporting many other departments. I’ve also had opportunities to join several committees working to promote the well being of employees.

It’s special to work at Lonza because…
I have always had wonderful colleagues. I’ve made lifelong friends working here.

My work is meaningful because…
Having had opportunities to be an Ambassador and a member of the Diversity and Inclusion Committee, as well as the WOW (Working On Wellness) group, I feel I’ve been able to make life more enjoyable for many people.

What makes me feel good at the end of the working day is…
Knowing that in my own way, I’ve helped to make a difference in someone else’s day.

The most exciting thing about working at Lonza is…
It has to be the fact that over my 31 years here, I’ve seen the company grow from a small biotech to the global company it is today.

What I most appreciate about my team is…
The relationship we all have. We're a truly cohesive group and we genuinely work together to meet our goals as a company.
